This is reference to the secretary (Posts) DO of even number dated 23th April 2021 addressed to all chief secretaries of States and UTs, in which it was requested to give priority to Postal workers for getting vaccinted against COVID19. The respective HoC were directed to get in touch with the vaccination nodal officers of the states / UTs to organise special Vaccination drive for the Postal Frontline Workers.
2. Whereas a few circles / Divisions have managed to organize special camps for Postal Frontline Workers of both 18+ and 45+ age brackets, several circles are yet to apprise the Directorate about the steps taken to ensure Vaccination of Postal Employees, especially those falling in the 18-44 years. Circles may kindly send a status update on firstname.lastname@example.org
3. It is also reiterated that in this period of unprecedented crisis, HoC are requested to extend all possible Assistance to families of Postal workers who have unfortunately lost their lives due to COVID,and also get their family pension, ex gratia payment etc. Released without any delay. Similarly, Employees including GDS,who are currently infected and undergoing treatment, should also be rendered support by the Circles.
4. Some circles / regions have already rollout WhatsApp based and online support systems to get in touch with Employees / GDS needing support, such best practices can be replicated by other circles/ regions as well. Circles / Regions are requested to kindly share such successful initiatives on the IPSA WhatsApp Group.
